The new downsized, turbocharged Porsche 911 is now being rolled out with all-wheel drive, with three body-styles, and 0-60 times as low as 3.6 seconds.
Porsche 911 Carrera 4s
What's better, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive? That question has occupied auto enthusiasts for years, and so far, we've not really had a solid answer one way or the other.

The automaker worked up a quick presentation for the 2013 911 Carrera 4S to show off a bit of "motionless driving." The display tracks the sports car from production to back-road caning and city-center cruising, displaying a variety of exterior color choices and wheel options without resorting to a two-dimensional video.
